A good portion of our jewelry pieces have been lovingly crafted and many of the components are put together by hand. As a result, there can sometimes be slight differences in the color, size and pattern of the materials or embellishments – all part of the goodness of handmade products!
The finish on plated/dipped jewelry may fade progressively over time from wear and tear. You may be able to prevent this by taking a few precautions in the care of your jewelry.
Always avoid contact with chemicals‚ such as hair spray, perfume‚ lotions‚ household cleansers, pool and sea water, and so on. You can help avoid these things by putting your jewelry on last when getting ready to go out. It is also best to remove rings before washing your hands.
Use a soft, clean cloth to wipe your jewelry pieces after wearing them to remove natural body oils, sweat or residue. If your jewelry comes into contact with water, it is recommended that you dry it with a soft cloth or tissue.
Avoid pulling or pushing with too much force on the pins of ear climbers as they are very delicate. They are easily adjustable without having to move the pins around.
If you follow all these rules, your jewelry will last you decades and decades ;)
